Subject[PATCH v6 0/8] x86: infrastructure to enable FSGSBASE
Date
Changes from V5 [5]:
* Unified name-space for the new FS/GS helpers
* Port patch #7 to latest -tip (resolve conflict with
e78e5a91456f: 'x86/vdso: Fix lsl operand order')
* Minor updates on comments and descriptions

Changes from V4 [4]:
* Change patch ordering; putting the fix first before introducing
the helper functions
* Cleanup further for vDSO CPU initialization codes

Changes from V3 [3]:
* Unify CPU number initialization

Changes from V2 [2]:
* Bisect the CPU number initialization patch
* Drop patches for introducing i386 CPU_NUMBER and switching
write_rdtscp_aux() to use wrmsr_safe()

Changes from V1 [1]:
* Rename the x86-64 CPU_NUMBER segment from PER_CPU
* Add i386 CPU_NUMBER equivalent to x86-64 at GDT entry 23
* Add additional helper function to store CPU number
* Switch write_rdtscp_aux() to use wrmsr_safe()
